I'm starting to increase my pace and distance in order to take the step up to a sub 2 hour half marathon and beyond (I don't want to state my ultimate goal, yet, needless to say it's a long term goal).
With this in mind, I think I can justify (to the Mrs) another spend and I'm thinking of compression Socks to aid recovery. I've been researching and have a few ideas, but have some specific questions that I can't seem to find the answer to. Hopefully, some of you lovely people can provide me with some answers!?
Firstly, do you need to wear them all the time to get the benefit of a compression sock? I see some people running in them and some people putting them on post run. Are there different types of socks that you put on after and ones you run in?
Secondly, are they more for bigger distances? I run a regular 6.4km commute with increased distances on a Sunday and speed work/core work mixed in, just wondering if I should be wearing them for every run.
Finally, sock or sleeve? I prefer the idea of a sock as my feet can hurt a bit after a long run, I also don't like the idea of the bottom of a sleeve riding up as I'm running, is this a problem?
Thanks in advance for your advise. I'm not sure if it's allowed on this forum, but if you could link some suggestions, I'd appreciate it.
